Combinatorics

* Permutation formula: $$^nP_r$$ = $$\frac{n! }{ (n-r)!}$$

* Combination formula: $$^nC_r$$ = $$\frac{n! }{ (r!)*(n-r)!}$$

* $$^nP_n$$ = n!

* $$^nC_r$$ = $$^nC_n_+_r$$

* The number of ways in which n things can be arranged taking them all at a time where p things are exactly the same,q things are exactly the same and r
things are exactly the same.

= $$\frac{n!}{p!*q!*r!}$$

* The number of ways of selecting one or more items from n given items

= $$2^n$$ -1

EXTRA FORMULAS

* The number of ways of dividing (p+q) items into two groups of p & q items respectively

= $$\frac{(p+q)!}{p!*q!}$$

Probability

Probability = $$\frac{Number of favorable outcomes }{Number of all possible outcomes}$$

Probability of events A & B happening = Probability of A * Probability of B

Probability of either event A or B happening = Probability of A + Probability of B
